Of course online learning is more effective with a spot of socialising - Pete Cannell, the Scotsman

Ask a friend what they think about learning online and they’ll often mention isolation and lack of social support. Based on our experience of working with partners like Parkinson’s UK, it’s time to change the way we look at online resources. Nowadays, the technology allows online material to be readable and accessible on a phone, tablet or computer. But technology is a means to an end, not the end itself. We learn through encountering new ideas and information, then trying them out in conversation, discussion and practice. In essence, we learn together. The future may be digital but if we want to make the best use of digital resources, the future of learning is social. http://www.scotsman.com/news/opinion/of-course-online-learning-is-more-effective-with-a-spot-of-socialising-1-4261445
